Event Description

Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 7:00pm, the Lyme Community Foundation is hosting The Lost Art of Silent Film Accompaniment, a silent film presentation featuring award-winning North Country organist Jason Comet. The presentation will be held at the historic Chaumont Presbyterian Church on State Route 12e in the Village of Chaumont. Four classic silent shorts will be featured on the big screen: Felix in Hollywood (1923), Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde (1912), Dr. Pyckyll and Mr. Pryde (1925), and The Goat (1921) starring Buster Keaton. Mr. Comet will introduce each film and accompany the films with his originally compiled scores.
The Lost Art of Silent Film Accompaniment is the latest in a series of film making programs LCF has presented in Chaumont. The foundation is a not for profit 501(c)(3) organization charged with enhancing learning and enrichment in the Town of Lyme. Founded in 1998, the LCF owns and maintains the Alexander Copley House and its grounds as a community center to serve the residents and visitors of the Town of Lyme. The building accommodates educational programs, cultural enrichment programs, and Acte II, a gently used clothing shop. Among its various community activities, the LCF publishes and distributes a community wide newsletter, the Lyme Light, provides scholarships to Lyme Central School students, and hosts numerous community events.
Suggested admission for the event is a $10 donation. More information about the event can be found at
